stance question.

hey guys, I got my first board a few weeks ago, got it set up, but I have a question about binding position. Right now I have my ride society set up with the inner screws for the binding one out from the thinnest stance. I've got my angles at I think +17/-9 (+1 notch from 15, -3 notches from 0 on ride plates, I've got RX bindings, I'm not sure what the exact angle is.) but the stance is a little too wide. I'll be doing all mountain and park riding. My question is would it be a problem to only move my front binding in one setting, or should I just move them both in?

thanks for any help guys, and sorry for the long post. also, could anyone tell me the actual angle my bindings are at? again, sorry for the long post.

Every little groove on the teeth of the binding disk are 3 degree incriments. It usually measures with a 0 then 15, 30, 45 like that. Big thing to remember with having your bindings on the society is the board has a natural set back of I think 1 inch so you want to make sure that you take that into account. To measure binding distances measure from the center of each disk and even it out. From the sounds of it you just need to slide the front disk inward toward the back binding but leave it on the insert setting its on.

so my angles are +18/-9, thanks man. As far as I know the society is a true twin, so it would make sense that it's a centered base, but I'll measure it to be sure. I'm thinking I should be alright with just moving the front binding back as it should change the stance enough to be comfortable, but not effect the ride negatively.

If it's the new one then I think it's got a centered stance on it.
